How to Keep Cut Flowers Fresh
Fresh WaterThe theory: Clean water will contain fewer bacteria.
Day 1: The ends are snipped by about 1/4 inch, as they will be every day. The vase gets fresh water every day, too.
Day 4: The stems are still relatively upright, and the blooms remain healthy.
Day 7: A few blooms are ready to be discarded, but with a little rearranging, the bouquet has life in it yet. (See photo, left.)
The verdict: Opened beautifully, but the petals dropped like flies after Day 4.
